    Berdych is so lucky with his draws opening up this year. He is 1-9 against the top 10 and despite that he is number 3 in the race.
    Yeah he is lucky, but he's also taking advantage of other players flaws and racking up as many points as he can. Fair play to him really.

    Stunning tiebreak from Stan after going 6-2 down though!

    Wawrinka defeats Nadal in a pretty epic fashion - that is probably his 2nd best match of the year, right behind that match against Nishikori at the AO.

    Poor second set from Rafa after a good first one. Still fancy him for Paris though!

    If Rafa wants to have a successful career in his 30s like Federer, then he must bring back the US Open 2010 serve and he must stand closer to the baseline and be more aggressive.

    His body simply can't hack it.

    He needs to learn to adapt.

    The general consensus seems to be that he should get rid of Uncle Toni and seek fresh ideas, but it's unlikely he'll do that

    I doubt it would really make much of a difference. Rafa is receptive to new ideas (US Open serve) but he's pretty stubborn in his approach to playing the game.

    So it's Federer vs Djokovic in the final. Last chance to make a mark before the French Open.

    Frack.

    Had a break point in the previous point but went on to get broken on his following serve, 6-4 Djokovic.

    A surprisingly straight forward win for Djokovic, so far skipping Madrid seems to have been the right call but none of this will matter unless he finally produces the goods in Paris.

    Yep, Djokovic too good today and he's such a heavy favourite for the French with the bookies now

    Watching Federer today made me very sad. He was getting bullied around the court by Djokovic in pretty much every rally. That wouldn't have happened 4-5 years ago. He should retire and save his legacy. He is making a fool out of himself by still playing.

    Come on put it in perspective. Djokovic is in his prime, and Federer is in his mid 30s. To even make the final of a clay Masters is impressive for him, and I don't think he committed himself badly at all. Djokovic was just too good that day.

    If getting beaten by the world no.1 at the peak of his powers in the final of a Masters is foolhardy, then everyone ranked below Federer should retire already and let Djokovic roll to his first French Open unopposed.

    Extremely tough and unlucky draw for Djokovic, if the seedings hold up to get his hands on his first Roland Garros trophy he'll have to go through Nadal, Murray and Federer in succession...

    So is it a potential Novak-Rafa quarter?
